Second Scarlet Cove mystery is as good as the first

Castle on the Hill (Scarlet Cove #2)Castle on the Hill by Agatha Frost

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good murder mystery and Agatha Frost is rapidly turning into a have to read favourite. This series with Evelyn Amber is a little more brutal than the Peridale Cafe series also penned by Frost but they’re no less compelling.

These ones are a little easier to spot the dastardly villain in though and this one I’d had an incline fairly early on as to who did the crime, although the big reveal was also done well.

I’m liking this new setting which is still very British, with its gossip and small town feel and I’m glad Liz and Simon’s romance isn’t being dragged out unnecessarily.
